The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is stored on a server in Germany.
The IP address is anonymized immediately after processing and before it is stored. You have the option to prevent the installation of cookies by changing the settings of your browser software. We would like to point out that with the according settings, not all functions of this website may be available.

Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our websites. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.
Through these plugins, information, which may also include personal data, may be sent to the service provider and possibly used by them. We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only through this activation of the plugin is the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider also triggered. We ourselves do not collect any personal data by means of the social plugins or about their use.
We have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. Currently, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the services of the provider is developed and at least the IP address and device-related information is collected and used. There is also the possibility that the service providers try to save cookies on the computer used. Please consult the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used.
